Hi
I do not think you will be able to blow back to reservoir, as there is usually a one way valve in the line.

Best to disconnect washer feed hose to the jets, and try the pump, I bet the jets are blocked, clean them with a piece of wire pulled from a wire brush.

Stick a water hose, into the W / Washer filler, and flush out the tank, might be sludge, blocking the intake.

Good Luck

Please give me a FixYa rating !

Washer jets not working


Step 1:

Hi Nicola

First thing to check will be making sure you hear the washer bottle motor working, when you operate the washer jets inside your car.If you can hear it, then you know that works, if it does not work, then you need to check the fuse has not blown, if it has replace the fuse with the same color fuse. Then check to see if it works. If it does not work then you need a new pump.

Step 2:

Pull of the main pipe to your jets, Then operate your washers again, There should be water coming out of the pipe.

Step 3:

If no water comes out, Pull the pipe of the washer pump on the washer bottle & operate your washers, if no water comes out, then you will need to take out the motor & check it is not blocked.

Step 4:

If the water does come out, then you need to check that pipe witch runs down to the washer motor for any kinks in the pipe, or just disconnect the pipe, try blowing through it, U should be able to blow through it easily, If not there will be a kink in the pipe, or the pipe will be blocked, so then the pipe needs to be kink free, unblocked, or a new piece of pipe installed.

Step 5:

If step 2 works, Then your jets are blocked.

Step 6:

To unblock them, Get a needle & push the needle through the whole in the jet to unblock it.

Step 7:

Do the same for all the jets, Put the pipes back on, Then operate the washers. They will work.

Step 8:

If you have any problems let me know. :)

Windscreen washer not working


Hi this sounds to me like a faulty pump, these are relatively easy to source from breakers yards & easy to change.

Mini Cooper 2005. My front windscreen washers do not work although the washer bottle is full. Rear washer works fine. Any suggestions to solve the problem?


If you can hear the washer motor running when you operate it then the fault is most likely caused by a small filter for the washer pump inside the bottle that blocks up.
You will need to remove the washer bottle and clean out the filter.

98 Hyundai Accent, front windscreen wash not spraying Pump runnin


If you dont have access to compressed air and a blow gun , to blow down the jets, then use a needle and try to clear the jets, and then try the wshers, you will have to adjust the jets after. If you still have nothing, or it is very weak, then remove the pipe and blow down it , also with the pipe off, try the washer pump to see if it is pumping strongly, because, although the pump is working/making a noise, it may be too weak, in which case you will need to replace the pump.
Hope this helps

Windscreen washer does not work on renault megane coupe sports motor works but no fluid comes out do not want to take washer bottle out any ideas please


i Just fixed a problem with a renault megan washer motor. If the motor makes a noise but is not pumping any water & the jets@ the windscreen are clear, then pull the suqirter motor out off the washer bottle( the bottle stays in place ) it just pulls out from underneith the bottom stone tray& may need to remove bottom bolt, inner lower wheeel arch. Right Now where the black & white squirter come out of the motor gentlywith a screw driver pop these off together. ( test motor again) ( put in water ) Then with Snap ring plires & part the white & black outlets apart & you will find a rubber seal that looks like it must of grown. When it grows it blocks both ports off. you need to shorten the rubber & keep it flat as remember its job seems to block off either the front or rear port. if it not a good finish you may get water coming out of the front & the rear ifeg your working the front squirters

Washer wiper not working, possibly used when


the fuse is the same as for the wipers and push on washer switch and see if you can hear washer pump run,otherwise try this (unless the motor pump has been dry run too long and ruined pump assy) and can't pump any longer go to a garage that has compressed air and at the wiper nozzles first gently blow air into each nozzle, then go to reservoir and remove supply hose to wiper nozzles and blow air gently and see if there's an obstruction in the line, you can use say 30 lbs max,reason being if any hoses where you cant get to them they can blow off fittings, also take air hose and on top of reservoir blow into hole on top of reservoir to push product thru lines and help pump (same as removing hose) on reservoir, I bet its unprimed itself or blocked with dirt,try this first

Windscreen washers not operating correctly. Water comes thru the jets but at low pressure


Get yourself a small gauge/thin piece of wire. Poke the jet holes with the wire until they spray like they used to. If you have an air compressor you can also blow through the sprayer with compressed air after poking them with the wire and they should be good as new. If that doesn't work you might have a blockage in the line at the one-way valve or at the pump in the washer tank.
